The drama centers on a married couple who attend a counseling weekend to try and get through the intimacy issues that have plagued their marriage for years. Meryl Streep will play the wife, although the husband hasn't been cast yet. We reported back in June that Jeff Bridges was closing his deal to star alongside Meryl Streep. It isn't known if Jeff Bridges is still attached.
David Frankel will direct from a script by Vanessa Taylor. Nathan Kahane, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch will executive produce.
Producers are hoping to get filming started on Great Hope Springs by August. A release date hasn't been set at this time
